About National Recycling Week

The dates for National Recycling Week this year and next year are:

  • Monday 12 to Sunday 18 November 2018
  • Monday 11 to Sunday 17 November 2019


In November 1996, Planet Ark founded National Recycling Week to bring a national focus to the environmental benefits of recycling. Now in its 23rd year, this established and highly regarded annual campaign continues to educate and stimulate behaviour change, by:

  • Promoting kerbside, industrial and community recycling initiatives
  • Giving people the tools to minimise waste and manage material resources responsibly at home, work and school.
